New York’s hot streak continues after receiving thumbs up from new president

March has been kind to Knicks fans. Earlier this week, the franchise announced that iconic coach Phil Jackson had accepted the presidency position. Then, on Wednesday night, the team kept the good vibrations flowing by recording its seventh straight win, this time over the Indiana Pacers by 92-86.

During the first quarter, Jackson, who won 11 NBA titles as a head coach, greeted the cheering masses at Madison Square Garden with a thumbs up and a wave.

“With a guy like that around, it creates a winning mentality, it creates an atmosphere that’s pretty golden and we’ve got to capitalize on that,” Knicks forward Amare Stoudemire told Associated Press.

Carmelo Anthony led the Knicks with 34 points over the Pacers, while Amare Stoudemire added 21 points and Tyson Chandler netted an additional 14.
